Tenosynovectomy How is it performed?Posted by Jason Pollizzi on 8/08/04 at 06:12 (157191)
I am interested in knowing how a physcian performs a tenosynovectomy on tendons for tendonitis? Will this cause more infllmartion to the area?

The doc basically strips the dieseased tissue from around the tendon. If the tendon is stripped bare, then adhesions can form afterwards. Agressive PT may be needed to prevent that.
